Watching A Convertible F-150 Drop Its Top Is Strangely Unsettling

Trucks aren't supposed to do this...

A convertible Ford F-150 is wrong for so many reasons. Here are just a few we came up with: It looks dumb, the convertible top takes up bed space, it's less tough and it looks dumb (was that already said)? Unfortunately, if you can dream it-and have deep enough pockets-you can do it. Those who have been reading CarBuzz for years probably guessed that California's Newport Convertible Engineering (NCE) were the creators of this convertible F-150. They've turned a whole host of normal, hardtop cars into oddball droptops.

A Tesla Model S, Nissan GT-R and Porsche Cayenne were just a few of the cars to have previously gone under the NCE knife. The GT-R actually looked good with its roof off. The same can not be said for the Porsche or Tesla. As for the F-150…just watch the video.

It is so, so weird seeing an F-150 drop its top! Obviously cutting the top off a truck makes no sense whatsoever, that is until you scope the trim level. Printed across the tailgate is the word "Platinum," as in the second-most expensive F-150 you can buy with an MSRP of $53,000. At that price this is basically a luxury SUV with a bed, or a grand touring car with a bed…
